Fantastic Flyers Fun Day at Sealyham

42 Flyers had a fantastic fun day filled with activities at Sealyham Activity Centre on Saturday 19th July

P1000098 “We did coasteering, team building and the assault course (in which we got very muddy!) My favourite activity was the coasteering because it was exciting and challenging.” – Jake P1000069 “I found that it was a fun experience and I really enjoyed the activities. My favourite activity was the kayaking – we played lots of games and jumped in at the end. I sank my kayak! The high ropes were challenging” – David P1000102 “Fun! We did archery and canoeing. The archery was in the woods with real arrows. We played lots of games in the canoes including squiditch and battleships (If you got hit by a sponge 3 times you had to jump off your boat into the water and shout ‘arghhhh – you sunk my ship’) and jumped off the rocks at the end. It was an amazing epic day” – Andrew P1000084
